Lionel Messi is one of the most recognisable celebrities in the world!
Unfortunately, Lebanese pop star Yara isn’t.
The singer has 2.7million followers on Instagram but clearly wasn’t big enough for Mr Messi to have any idea who she is!
The footballing superstar was introduced to Yara by her manager, but still needed a little prompting to work out just who he was speaking to.
Yara’s manager can be seen showing Lionel who the singer is on his phone, before the Barca legend shakes his head in confusion!
The little forward has millions of adoring fans and can’t be expected to know all of them! …even if they are superstars in their own right.
Check out the cringe-fest below:
As you can see it gets pretty awkward for a moment there!
But the pair enjoy a few nice kisses so I’m sure neither of them will complain too much…
Messi met Yara after he bagged a hattrick against Manchester City in the Champions League.
Not bad for a day’s work…
